to convince harry reid a democrat from nevada and also a pro gun democrat to bring a bill up. but he has indicated in some local press back in nevada that he's not going to do that any time soon. he said the first thing on his agenda is to bring up immigration reform. so after the president is inaugurated, if you will, they are going to probably move to some wrap up stuff and then go straight to immigration reform. the question is when will the senate go to it. also leader reid said he won't move anything that can't get through the house. the house is controlled by republicans. and they are mostly pro gun caucus then it sounds to me like the senate won't take up the issue of gun safety or gun control any time soon. so we'll have to wait and see what kind of pressure the white house puts on their own democratic leaders. >> as we heard earlier, obama and members of his administration will be launching a campaign style push on this issue in the coming weeks. why is public support so key? >> basically, the president has the bully pulpit and that's someone no one in the senate or house, they

's coming, yet again, from republicans. a las va gas casino worker, nevada rock san ruben pled guilty to voter fraud twice. so why vote at two different polling stations? she was trying to prove how easy it is to commit voter fraud. i guess her arrest means things didn't work out so well. nevada secretary of state says if ms. rubin is trying to demonstrate how easy it is to commit voter fraud, she clearly failed and proved just the opposite. hey, republicans, what happens in ve gurks as doesn't stay in vegas. the right-wing voter fraud is a complete bust. it's not even a nice try. but we still got you. blank blaeng rjs what pa difference four years makes. barack obama and hillary clinton were bitter rivals in the 2008 campaign. who would have predicted they've become allies. but after appointing clinton's secretary of state, there was a surprising twist to this story. they genuinely seemed to like each other. the evolution from power rivals to power duo was on full display last night in a first-ever joint interview with 60 minutes. >> despite our hard-fought primary, we had such agree
think that's wrong. but if you look at, for example, the state that the president was in today, nevada, there is a republican hispanic governor in the state, very popular, brian sandoval. you look at new mexico republican hispanic governor susana martinez. part of the problem republicans have communicating to hispanics is the total utter toxicity of the republican brand, the washington, d.c. brand. but once you're able to break out of that d.c. brand, republicans are able to put an imprint that is appropriate for nevada or new mexico on the party. and you're finding success there. now, i don't think that the numbers that you talked about on those issues are permanent. republicans when we just finish the presidential election where we were doomed by comments like the 47%, we need to have a message that reaches out to every american, is about empowerment, is about climbing the socio-economic ladder, about revitalizing the american middle class that has been in decline. we have to talk about those things. we have to have plans that are grounded in reality to deal with the problems that am

it's his philosophy because he nevada told us what that was. >> i think he said some nice things at one point. >> when he spoke at the democratic national convention, former president bill clinton brought the house down. this was one of the great speeches, ever, i think. it made the case for reelecting president obama in a way the candidate himself never got able to do, even to the end. let's listen to big bill at his best. >> are we better off than we were when he talk office? then, listen to this. listen to this. everybody's forgotten. everybody's forgotten when president barack obama took office, the economy was in free fall, it had just shrunk nine full percent in gdp. we were losing 750,000 jobs a month. are we doing better than that today? the answer is yes. >> you know, i was thinking back to the fairy tale remark. the guy's showman ship with the gesticulation, the hands, the whole dinism the way he presents this case. >> earlier this year, i wrote oh, who needs conventions what are they for, anyway? they're for moments like that. i was on the floor at that moment. it was
. next week the president is going to be going to nevada to talk about immigration reform. i mean, do you think that we can get immigration reform in this country? i mean, are there going to be -- i don't think there is going to be 60 votes for the assault weapons ban. there is not going to be 60 votes for climate change. what about immigration reform? >> well, i think you're probably right. and what ends up happening is if you manage to cobble together some agreement, which does get you 60 votes, what you can be absolutely assured of is that that piece of legislation is going to be much, much more conservative, much less effective than it otherwise would have been. could we get 51 votes to create millions of jobs and rebuild the infrastructure? yeah, i think we can. can we get 51 votes to ask the wealthy and large corporations to help us with deficit reduction rather than cut social security and medicare? i think we can. but can we get 60 votes for those proposals? no, we can't. >> senator bernie sanders, good to have you with us this evening. thank you so much. >>> coming up, the republ
-hitting senators made hur to put on the their announcement today ahead of the president's announcement in nevada tomorrow to show that there's bipartisan supports, to make sure that they didn't look as if they were following the president, which wouldn't be good for republicans in the group. while there is momentum among the elite in washington, we're not sure how this will play outside yet, and we saw back in 2007 you had ted kennedy aligned with the senate on the democratic side. you had john mccain on the republican side. the maverick came together and mccain got crushed on this issue. it was very damaging to him both in his presidential and also in his senate re-elect, so i think it's what's important to watch here as the immigration stuff unrolls this week. it's how are grassroots particularly conservatives reacting to these proposals. >> and the next big step coming up we've got a vote in the senate foreign relations committee tomorrow on john kerry. that's going to be automatic. he is going to be breezed through and voted for and hillary clinton leaves friday. he will be coming in next mo
the bipartisan plan. president obama is flying to nevada to push the issue there. there was a flash of the old straight talking john mccain today when he was asked why republicans are suddenly ready to compromise so much on immigration. >> one, as i have stated before elections, elections, the republican party is losing the support of our hispanic citizens. and we realize that there are many issues in which we think we are in agreement with our hispanic citizens. but this is a preeminent issue with those citizens. >> today's developments left one right-wing republican observer completely dumbfounded. >> if the democrats think their position on immigration, let's use that for example, is the right one, and if the democrats' position is what is getting all that support from hispanic voters, what i don't understand is why would the democrats want to give up some of those voters to the republicans? can somebody help me out here. >> i don't know, rush, sounds like you're beyond help, but i'll give it a try. what you are seeing is not a compromise on immigration. you are seeing republicans surrender
in what used to be mexico, las vegas, nevada, to urge congress to overhaul the immigration system. >> today i'm laying out my ideas for immigration reform. and my hope is that this provides some key markers to members of congress as they craft a bill. because the ideas i'm proposing have traditionally been supported by both democrats like ted kennedy and republicans like president george w. bush. you don't get that matchup very often. >> the president's plan is similar to the plan eight bipartisan senators put forward yesterday, but it has not even cleared the path to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants in the united states now. >> for comprehensive immigration reform to work, it must be clear from the outset that there is a path to citizenship. we have got to lay out a path. a process that includes passing a background check. paying taxes, paying a penalty. learning english. and then going to the back of the line behind all the folks who are trying to come here legally. that is only fair. all right. >> under the president's proposal, undocumented workers would be re
nevada and is a gun owner, obviously it's hard for him but he's not up for re-election for four years and that if he runs again. there are many democrats up in 2014 from pro gun states who will be really vulnerable voting on something an assault weapons ban. i think what -- sort of a back door escape for the senate will be to put this pressure on the floor that would allow for an assault weapons ban but leave it open to amendment, in other words, it could be weakened easily by other amendments on the floor. it will kind of give cover to democrats who will be vulnerable from this, but the ultimate result will be, i think, just universal background checks. that's the maximum you're going to see here just for political reasons. and i think that even if the future, it's going to be hard, even if the congress is democratic on both sides because democrats are vulnerable on this issue as well as republicans. >> our power panel, thanks for being patient where me. i appreciate it. i appreciate your time. of course, we are following this breaking news elsewhere today coming out of massachusetts
at the nevada seminar, he called the second amendment freedom's most valuable, most cherished idea. clearly, the rhetoric, the absolutist if not extremist rhetoric of the national rifle association seems to be catching up with them. >> krystal ball and frank smyth, thank you for joining us. >> my pleasure. >>> coming up, hillary clinton says she just can't see herself getting back into politics. but andrea mitchell can, which is why she asked hillary clinton if she would challenge joe biden in the democratic primary. you will see the answer to that question coming up. mission a fo. this is for real this time. step seven point two one two. verify and lock. command is locked. five seconds. three, two, one. standing by for capture. the most innovative software on the planet... dragon is captured. is connecting today's leading companies to places beyond it. siemens. answers. why does my mouth feel dryer than i remember it to be? there are more people taking more medication, so we see people suffering from dry mouth more so. we may see more cavities, bad breath, oral irritation. a dry mouth suff
and brian sandoval in nevada. you have western states, growing states, you've got latino states. so i've got to say there is a political element. god bless her. it's good to pay attention to politics sometimes. arizona will be a blue state, and she is facing reality. she has a lot of uninsured employed people there. when we talk about this program, we're talking about the working poor, the working class who are working but cannot get insurance through their employer. latinos are more likely to be in that situation than a lot of others of us. and so she is seeing the truth. she is calling it a moral decision. and i'm happy for that. i think we'll see a few more governors before we're through. >> well, it's interesting. a favorite talking point by the republicans has been that government spending does not create jobs. and i think that jan brewer pretty much took care of that bullet point. what do you think? >> yeah, i was going to point that out. yes. she wants that $2 billion. it creates jobs. it's good for the state of arizona. she doesn't want it going somewhere else. they know that. they'r
, nevada, all of those governors will be interesting to see how many of them are very vulnerable in 2014 or not. christie, obviously, is the 2013 -- not very null vulnerable. maine, very vulnerable. this could be where some of the action is here. democratic legislatures here. here are the places where there are democratic governors and a divided legislature. arkansas, missouri and montana. arkansas is sort of the lone holdout in the south where republicans have gotten everything. but they have super majorities in places like missouri and arkansas. so they have effectively -- they can override any veto of the democratic governor, whether it's tax rates, any of those things. so they have effective control on that front. let's look at this, the other places where there is divided government in iowa, the house and senate. the governor there, republican governor. new hampshire, oh, you've seen there, not surprising. washington state, a little surprising. since it's a state with democratic dominance, if you will. and kentucky, a little surprising, since it's a state with republican dominance.
in the abstract nevada coming clean with the public only if we sharply curtail all popular programs. when i read that quote, what i immediately think of is the debate where governor romney identified big bird because the best that he could come up with in termings of a cut was pbs, which i think makes the point. >> michael, it's a lot worse than that. you may recall that president obama, through the affordable care act, generated 700 in the entitlements. no, they attacked them for those cuts. and they said we'll put it back in. so the hipocrasey is very deep. this is a little economic. just do this thought experiment. suppose you found an honest republican, and there are some, who said we can balance the bungt. if we collect 25% of gdp in revenue and spend 25% in out leis, those balances are out. they would run from you in horror. they're not interested in balancing the budget. they're interested in shrinking the government. however, when it actually comes to plans, trugman is partially right. now, there are republicans who talk about block-granting medicaid. who talk about premium support. they
the missile used in that attack is actually thousands of miles away in virginia, say, or nevada rather than him or herself actually being at the battlefield. but the idea that the ethically relevant thing about a drone is how far away you the trigger puller are from the explosion or the damage that you cause with your weapon, that is a quantitative matter. that is not a qualitative matter. we have always been able to project force far away from the person who is exerting it. the ethical sensitivity here is really not about the particular type of weapon of war we are using. it is that we are killing people using that weapon of war in place that's aren't war zones. and that is the unnerving consequence of the whole yfd a war on terror or a war against a non-state actor that could be anywhere in the world and that therefore designates that war as taking place everywhere. the most frequent outside a war zone place where our government carries out these kinds of attacks is of course in pakistan. in 2010 we saw what the obama administration was going to be like on this score. there was a u.s. dro
leader harry reid recently told a local pbs station in nevada. "let's be realistic," he said. "in the senate we're going to do what we think can get through the house, and i'm not going to go through a bunch of gyrations just to say that we've done something. if we're really legislators, the purpose of it is to pass legislation." senator reid did not show the same kind of hesitation with another moral issue, relief for superstorm sandy. the relief package was passed by the senate even though house speaker john boehner hadn't brought it up for a vote. in fact, the senate passage helped to put pressure on the house. sandy relief passed in the house with a minority of republican votes and almost every democrat. speaker boehner would not have brought the bill to the floor if it hadn't already been passed in the senate. there was similar pressure with the fiscal cliff deal. it passed in the senate first. then boehner was forced to bring it to the floor for a vote and the house, even though only a minority of republicans supported it. today senator majority leader harry reid seemed to c
the state of nevada. ron paul did not win either state, and yet, there were a lot of delegates that were supposed to go to romney, that ended up having ron paul supporters fill that slot. shouldn't the romney folks feel as if delegates who are assigned to him, be forced to vote for him, at least on the first ballot? >> chuck, you gave a remarkably good run down on some major aspects of the rules battle, but in this respect, you didn't get it quite right. what was at issue was not whether or not candidates got the delegate votes that they would win in a primary, but whether or not a presidential candidate could disallow and remove delegates that they didn't like. there was a big uproar over this. and there was no question, ever, that delegate votes won in a primary wouldn't be cast as allocated by state law. >> let me stop you here. you, specifically say "primary." you believe it's different for caucus states? >> well, in a caucus situation, the people are actually elected as delegates, in some way, under state party rules. so it really wasn't an issue with respect to caucus states, becau
